Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2006063385A1] A new disposition of energy use and electricity cogeneration facilities at a customer's premises that enables even a small customer to choose one or more forms of primary energy from among available energy sources, so as to reduce the overall capital and operating costs of meeting own load requirements. Takes into consideration opportunities to save money by way of reducing own load and / or opportunities to earn money by exporting electricity to the mains grid whenever electricity market prices are high, and / or benefiting from payment for network support and ancillary services where such schemes apply. For operations requiring a high level of reliability, opportunity is provided to achieve a desired level of reliability for operations at the premises without recourse to extra cost of duplicate electricity supply connecting lines or expensive stand-by power generation facilities.
